Dallas Wise and Laura Ecklund have been very capably handling Registry and Member Services part-time alongside General Manager, Tessa Verbeek. Laura is welcoming a new baby this fall and therefore will be taking 12 months off of her CLA duties. She will be carrying on in the capacity of CJLA Coordinator during this time. We are very pleased to announce that we will be welcoming AJ Smith to the CLA staff beginning September 26th. Purebred cattle are nothing new to AJ as her family has a purebred Simmental herd near Carstairs, AB. She has a passion for cattle and is a familiar face around many shows in western Canada. We wish Laura all the best with her growing family and look forward to having AJ as part of the team available to assist CLA members!
